MTN offers affordable data to South African government employees in 2024

 ·19 Feb 2024

MTN’s RT15 agreement with the South African government makes it easy for state employees to access affordable and reliable data connectivity to conduct their important work in 2024.

Signed in 2021, the RT15 partnership made MTN an official mobile service provider to the government and allowed it to offer special packages to state departments and their employees.

This was an extremely important milestone for MTN, as the arrangement aligned with the company’s commitment to supporting economic and social growth in South Africa. It also put the company in a great position to support the public sector.

The partnership has proved extremely fruitful over the past three years and continues to deliver more value to state employees than ever before.

MTN’s offering with the RT15

MTN has fined-tuned its RT15 deals over the years to include everything a government employee could need from a connectivity perspective.

This includes:

  • Uncapped data with no fair use policy (FUP)
  • Uncapped closed user group minutes
  • Uncapped closed user group SMSs
  • Voice minutes to call other networks
  • A variety of smartphones

These services are critical across all lines of work in 2024 and ensure state employees stay connected, have access to important resources, and won’t be constrained by data limits.

Government employees benefit from additional data and minutes allocations for personal use, too, which can be topped up at the individual’s expense.

Planning for the future with MTN

MTN’s RT15 agreement is one of several ways that the company is contributing towards social and economic growth in South Africa.

This is complemented by its drive to ensure all South Africans have access to telecommunications and connectivity services – including in rural areas.

MTN’s ultra-rural network expansion includes projects that have brought LTE connectivity to rural parts of the country including Eastern Cape’s Lusikisiki and KwaZulu-Natal’s Msinga and Mhlabuyalingana communities.

Over the years the MTN Foundation has been a critical player in the education space as it has connected over 300 schools to date – this has seen thousands of pupils and communities benefiting. The foundation will continue expanding such initiatives in 2024 and beyond.

All of these projects are enabled by MTN’s network modernisation, 5G deployment and network resilience programmes.

Our focus, which is in line with our strategy, is to connect the unconnected and ensure that every South African, regardless of economic status or location, access reliable and seamless connectivity and best value products.
